Course programme

Ph.D. in Comparative Literature

The Centre for Comparative Literature functioning since 1988, aims at providing an interface between literatures and cultures with a contemporary charge. The Centre offers research programmes in M.Phil and Ph.D. The endeavour is to: encourage young learners to research expressive modes and archives of knowledge beyond those of their own culture; forge alliances with and develop sensitivity to differences in cultures and traditions; develop a critical awareness of socio-political and cultural discourses in terms of their impact on the literary and cultural studies.

The Ph.D. programme extends over a minimum period of two years from the date of confirmation of admission. The nature of the programme is individually decided, but the requirements invariably include Course work over two semesters comprising of 16 credits and a dissertation on an approved topic under faculty guidance.
Applicants for admission to the Centre should note that the medium of instruction in the Centre is English, and they should therefore ensure that they have a good knowledge of English to follow the lectures and to participate in other curricular actives of the Centre. Furthermore, applicants must provide documentary evidence of knowledge of the literatures of at least two languages (one of which may be English). This does not hold in the case of those who already have an M.Phil. in Comparative Literature and are applying for a Ph.D.
